Bearwing's Butterfly by autumnwind

This is dedicated to my friend bearwings

He sent me a bmail, one sentence saying he would send me some butterflies, after I told him how upset I was that I did not see a butterfly for a week in my garden. The moment I wrote him back, our ‘butterfly alert’ wen off (someone yelling butterfly in the garden) and I swear there was not only one but two yellow swallowtails in my garden for hours.

Today, they were back, along with a monarch and a black swallowtail.

This is dedicated to my friend Trevor, and to friendship, and all the magic that it brings.

He’s not around much of late but we all are here on and off at different times. Just sayin if you get the chance …I mean who would send me butterflies from around the world? And you, there is no not loving you my dear, and that’s a fact. Thank you about the butterfly. I got more today but haven’t imported them yet.
